Joe Madureira Returns to Marvel in June

What title will he be working on? Wolverine is definitely in it.

Back in December we reported that Joe Madureira mentioned wanting to do more at Marvel. We have no idea what he'll be working on next but he did say:

All I can say is that it’s got Wolverine in it, Spidey and Elektra. And Ninja. Lots of Ninja.

Marvel released the following teaser today:

The only other information included was the date, June 2013.

Will he take over Frank Cho's SAVAGE WOLVERINE? Paul Cornell and Alan Davis have a Wolverine series coming soon. Could we be seeing a fourth Wolverine title (if you include WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN)?

Stay tuned for more information.

I loved Joe Mads. I don't like his Wolverine tho.

Not another Wolverine title!!!

Why is Wolverine's jaw unhinged?

Anyways, I'm excited for this. Wolverine and Spider-Man are my 2nd and 3rd favorite comic book characters, respectively. This seems right up my alley and I'm excited to see what it's all about. I know the shelves are usually pretty over-saturated with Wolverine books anyways, but I didn't enjoy Savage Wolverine at all, so I need a good Wolverine book to fill the void of disappointment that it created.

I hope that if it's a new Wolverine comic it's a miniseries rather than an ongoing. I like Wolverine but I'd prefer to see someone else get a chance - Hercules for example.

I like how he draws Spidey, and Hulk!

No more Wolverine until Marvel can do him correctly!

It's about time. Been a long time since those first issues of Avenging Spider-Man came out. Too long. Hopefully he'll be back and be regular.

Did he ever finish Battle Chasers? Finish that first!

Posted by Planewalker
@LiquidSwords: He already said he's never going to finish it... Joe said that he no longer feels connected with those characters to do something in that universe he would need to redesign the whole thing, and he no longer has the time for that!

So Joe Mad signs on to drum up sales for 4 issues on some no-name title? I boycotted Ultimates and the no-name Spidey title that no longer exists for this very reason. Put him on a damn title worth a damn and make it for longer than 6 issues and I'll probably be more excited.

Wow, a title that Wolverine appears in? That only narrows it down to 50.

Posted by Rolls7royce

What's the point? He is a relic of the 90's who can not commit to a project long term. I'd take a lesser known artist if it meant some consistency.

Am I the only one here who doesn't like Madureira's art?

Posted by Green ankh

Only reason im getting Savage Wolverineis for Cho. If he leaves i'll follow. I hope this ins't the case. But then here we go again Marvel will drowned us with Wolverine.

They won me over at ninjas

Posted by Dabee

Does Wolverine MAX not count? Wouldn't it be 5?

Anyway, looking forward to it. I like Madureira's style.

Posted by ANDRELO

There's a spiderweb in the background it's gonna be a superior /wolvy/thunderbolts crossover.

Posted by Prodigy P

Wtf lol could this be Avenging Wolverine?

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

I like Madureira and it is no secret I am a huge Wolverine fan :)

Posted by kingjoeg

Loved Avenging spider-man 1-3 so I will definatley get this.

Posted by ThreadPool

"Yes! More Wolverine!"

-Everyone who receives royalty checks for Wolverine appearances

Posted by TheHeat

Yay! Another Wolverine title. At least, Spidey will be in it.

Posted by AWeekInGeekdom

Isn't this what Marvel meant with the "Scarlet" teaser with Bendis and Mad? If it's centered around Wolverine and more of a new team I might pick it up.

You're not alone.

Although I'm not so harsh as Rolls because I do in fact like Joe Mad's work - I do agree with the sentiment as a whole.

As a comic aside - they could even call this title "Wolverine's SEAL TEAM 6 mission to hand Joe Mad extra money for his 6th Lambo!!! "

Sounds like a comic i've read ten times already.

I agree. I loved his art work he did but the fact he couldn't commit to his book doesn't really send the right message to the fans.

i dont understand why people hate on wolverine titles. just dont buy them. iron man is on every avengers team, gaurdians, plus his own series and ultimate iron man and ultimates. plus he guest appears in every title. never hear complaining about him is all

How is it technically a WOLVERINE title. It's him, Elektra, and Spider-Man. Not just Wolverine.

Posted by SexualLobster

I like Spidey and Wolverine team-ups.

Wolverine is still one of the main characters, probably the main character.

I don't know who this guy is, but if he's an artist, and ^that^ wolvie picture is his work... then I like him (+)

Quote For Truth!

I was 8 years old when that came out - I'm 22 now and still hoping that it one day will be completed!

but Joe Mad is a god though - so whatever he chooses to do with his talents I'm more than psyched for it!

Posted by Baberaham_Lincoln

This is avenging spidey right?? cause i remember seeing an art preview with Elektra, spidey and wolvey by Mad sooooo it yeah makes senese yeah.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

YAY MAUR WOLVERINE!!!!

Posted by frochez

Wow, Wolverine. It's nice to see him get the spotlight, as he's such a deep, mult-facetted character, and Marvel just doesn't give him the focus that he deserves. It's nice that their finally putting someone new getting centre stage, for a change.

On a separate note (pertaining more to the actual subject of this article) Yay for Madureira!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow, is Wolvie getting pimped again with title after title because of the upcoming movie this year? Who knows...but good for JOe I say...I think...

It's a pity there's not a 'dripping with sarcasm' button you can add to posts on the Vine ;P

i dropped savage wolverine because reasons , so i may look into this , i love the character and ninjas. if he takes over savage cool , if its a new series im in! plus the pic in the article looks really cool

Posted by dontbelievethehyperion

I'll pick it up if Joe Mad's involved.

And it's always great to pair Wolverine with Spider-Man. Loved the Astonishing limited series.
